Dee Ford: Nick Bosa is a great guy, social media doesn’t matter

Nick Bosa, the 49ers’ first-round draft pick, has taken quite a bit of criticism for social media posts that some saw as racist, and he pledged to get off Twitter so he’d avoid stirring any controversy in San Francisco. One veteran in the locker room says that’s unnecessary.

Teammate Dee Ford said Bosa is already blending in well during offseason work and it doesn’t matter what opinions he has expressed on social media.

Yeah, he’s a great guy,” Ford said, via Jennifer Lee Chan of CSNBayArea.com. “Social media is social media. I could care less. Honestly, who you are at work is important to me and he’s a great guy. I don’t even have a social media. I’m not even up to speed with the quotes and all that. I don’t care. Who he has presented to us is a great guy that’s ready to work and that’s all that matters to me.”

The 49ers also didn’t seem concerned about anything Bosa has tweeted, taking him with the second overall pick.

  1. Niner players keep telling us that Bosa is a great teammate and ect. They’re trying too hard to sell it by speaking about his character. Seems sketchy.

  2. You COULDN’T CARE LESS Dee. As in I couldn’t care less that I am personally responsible, nobody else but me, for the chiefs not going to the Super Bowl.

  3. If he can stay healthy he should be a good player, but he already pulled a hammy? As far as the politics, who cares? Half the country thinks he’s an idiot, a trait we all share.

  4. A torn ACL in high school, to core surgeries in college. This dude can’t stay healthy and will be out of the league in 3 years. Will go down as one of the biggest draft bust of all time. The only reason he gets press is his last name. And lets be totally honest, his last name isn’t all that. His father and uncle didn’t last long in the league, and his brother like him can’t stay healthy. Joey is better but really is that saying much??? He played 3 games last year in college. That was good enough for him to be the 2nd pick in the draft???? Really?????

  5. Thanks again for jumping offside in the AFC Championship and letting most of America down last January.

    Correction: He lined up offside…even worse

  7. His political opinions shouldn’t be a judge of his character but in my eyes his support of our President makes him a great guy in my opinion. MAGA!

  8. Put more succinctly, Bosa publically aligned himself with the most blatantly racist, sexist, misogynistic HATERS to come along in a long time. Damn straight I’ll judge him for that.

  9. Still not sure why people think our president is racist? Do we have proof/examples of this blatant racism? I guess his one “grab em” comment could cast him as misogynistic, but as a honest man I’m pretty sure most of us have made off comments in regards to women in our past before. I prefer to stick to facts when making a judgment call.
